(Photo: FMCSA’s rule establishes a core curriculum for CDL applicants and establishes a register of certified driver trainers. The rule’s compliance date is more than three years out — February 2020. The delay in its effective date does not appear to alter the February 2020 compliance date) -- Washington, DC, USA - CCJ, by James Jaillet - January 31, 2017
